The Space, the brainchild of Las Vegas entertainer and philanthropist Mark Shunock, opened its doors on Jan. 5. Invited guests, including media and founders, were the first to tour the new community arts complex.

The Space’s first visitors were also treated to music in the piano bar as they sipped on cocktails and enjoyed passed hors d’ouevres from Fleming’s with entertainment from The Moonshiners.

The new community-driven, charity-based arts complex is set to be a haven for all arts and artists in Las Vegas and designed to accommodate a wide variety of events including plays, musicals, intimate concerts, readings, workshops of all kinds, ancillary fundraising events, parties and photo shoots.
